Thinking and talking about your final wishes can be tough.
It’s not always easy but, doing the work of deciding, discussing, and documenting your final wishes and sharing those wishes with your loved ones has proven to ease anxieties and reduce stress.
Peace of mind for everyone!
After Death, Care and Support
How to Make Your Final Arrangements
Just like planning for a wedding, a baby, or buying
a home or car, families need to discuss funeral planning and the costs involved. Avoiding the
topic will make it more difficult and likely
more expensive for your loved ones.
Planning ahead can make a painful time easier
to bear, and many find great meaning and
peace carrying out thoughtful funeral
plans that honor their
loved one’s wishes.

other people expect you to do.
No amount of money, great or small, can express how we feel about those who have died. Taking an active role in funeral arrangements—whether that means carrying out the whole process without a funeral
home or just preparing and delivering the
eulogy—is more meaningful than
the money we spend.
